The Doctrine of Signatures

A Defense of Theory in Medicine

"The Doctrine of Signatures is one of the first and most significant works in our time to show how closely connected the liberal arts are to clinical medicine. It is the seminal work in the recent history of the philosophy of medicine, a field that is enjoying a renaissance throughout the world today."
-- Edmund D. Pellegrino, M.D.
